REVIEW: Playing with the mind is in her DNA. After being honored ‘Author of the Year’ award by SALISONLINE.in last year for her book ‘Hidden Husband’, Shikha Kaul looks to grab one this year again. Her new book is even better than her previous one.
DNA- Dad’s Not Adopted is an amazing thriller and you will be attached to the book like a magnet till the very last page. The very first thing which comes into your mind when you hear the word ‘thriller’ is action, drama, and an unexpected end and that’s what this book is all about.
The author will play with your mind as the story moves in the direction of exposing the real killer. The plot of the story is very interesting and it will surely grab your attention. The language used in the book is very simple, which makes it more beautiful.
What I loved the most about the book is that you can’t take your mind of the story. The story is also very detailed which makes it more realistic and interesting.
Adding some more twist and turns could have made the story more mysterious. Some blood and terror looked missing in the thriller story. The cover of the book looks very beautiful but unfortunately, it does not relate to the story.
Overall, the story of the book is very interesting and you will surely enjoy reading it. It’s a MUST READ!
